Although college has few benefits for young adults, most critics debate that college too expensive for an individual; college is worth it and college does have value. For many high school graduates, higher education is out of reach because of the cost. College tuition raised tremendously over the last fifty years. Most parents (ninety-four percent) surveyed say that they want
As the price tag on college is shooting up and the amount of federal funds are minuscule in comparison, students are relying on private loans to cover their education (McGuire). Increasing federal funds would drive the need for private student loans down substantially, eliminating one of the biggest problems in the student loan crisis. A lack of private loans would mean a lack of sky-high interest rates that cause many borrowers to default on their payments. Student loans aren’t tightly regulated in terms of protections around interest rates and default which allows lenders to “[treat student loans] more like credit cards, with variable interest rates as high as 18% and terms set by the lenders” (McGuire). These unbelievably high-interest rates are what cause a big problem when repaying student loans.
There are numerous community colleges across the nation, and several undergraduates attend community colleges every year. With an enormous number of the nation’s undergraduates attending community colleges, society as a whole should want community colleges to be in the best condition to educate its future members. However, most community colleges are failing to do just that. Community colleges are failing to properly educate their students, and because education is a valuable aspect of the American society, community colleges should be refined to produce knowledgeable citizens of the United States of America. Community colleges require some students to take remedial classes due to low standardized test scores; however, this requirement harms undergraduates more than it benefits them.
Most people do not have enough money to pay for their college education upfront, requiring them to take out loans. if you don't find a job in that amount of time, you may end up having to make high payments without having a income. (Jody Zambrano, Demand Media). It seems that college could be defined as an investment, only if you can get a college degree and find a nice job that it is worth the time and money, otherwise it just waste of life.Moreover,If you decide not to attend college, you are able to get out into the real world to work, travel or volunteer and many different tings. While you are decide to go to college, it means that you will give up these other experiences.
After graduating high school, the majority of teenagers nowadays choose to continue their studies in college to attain a bachelor’s degree. There is no question that education is essential for our future careers. Unfortunately, I have noticed that not all students in my peer group are able to finish college. “Nearly one out every five students in America drop out of college by the first semester.” There are three main reasons for teenagers dropping out, them being: financial issues, academic struggles, and another simply being to start a career. Firstly, college as well all know is quite expensive and is continuously increasing in price.
A college degree is now the minimum ticket to get in the door to any white-collar job. Now you have to compete with large numbers of applicants for fewer number of jobs. Likewise, the value of the high school diploma has dropped. There is a big gap between an annual earning and unemployment rate of college graduates and high school graduates. High school graduates are doing even worse financially.
Jobs would fail because the people applying can’t get accepted without a college degree. According to The New York Times “once students enroll in college, dropping out is the worst decision they can make”. Entering in a low paying job, drop outs must slowly pay back student loans, which is why college Is so important to stick to and graduate. College is important because after graduating or even if you drop out your stuck with a massive amount of student loans; having a college degree can insure that you get a good paying job so that you can pay your loan(s) off sooner than later. College graduates aged 25 to 32 who are working full time earn about $17,500 more annually than their peers who have only a high School diploma, according to the Pew Research Center.
“Just nine percent of students from the lowest income quartile graduate with a bachelor 's degree by age twenty four, compared to seventy seven percent for the top income quartile” (Feldman n.pg.). College is becoming unrealistic for several students across America because of the outrageous prices that continue to increase. While some people believe college is a reasonable price due to the fact that it is a necessary piece of qualifying for higher paying jobs, it is unfair. As a matter of fact, wealthy students are now being offered a wider range of opportunities than others, not on the grounds that they have increased knowledge, but because their parents have additional money. All students have the right to an education with persistent work, not just those who live prosperously.
Moreover, young people aged 18 to 34 have struggled with double-digit unemployment. Some people believe that the rising of college unemployment due to lack of employment opportunities. Even though the job market for new college graduates is better than it has been in recent years, there is still a vast amount of unemployment and underemployment among college graduates. Many people think that a degree diploma is easy to get a
Rough Draft: College should be thrown off a ledge (help i need new title) Deciding whether college is the best path to take can be difficult for many high school students, as it is the deciding factor in determining one’s success in the future. Oftentimes, it is not the students’ choice to make. Rather, it is from the pressures of society that impels them to go to college, whether they are by parents, teachers and guidance counselors, the media, or past alumni who had already gone to college. Students are conditioned to maintain the belief that going to college is the “right thing to do”, that a higher form of education leads to better chances of success in life. Yet, with the ever rising prices of tuition, college seems to be a reach for those who cannot afford a postsecondary education.
